The Liberated Artist

Your Goddess Qualities

Aphrodite loves beauty, and her own beauty can steal men’s hearts.  She enjoys nature, especially flowers of all kinds.

Your Personality at Its Best

As an Aphrodite, you are a liberated woman with many talents in search of independence and personal security.  You love life’s thrills and your instinctive skills of self-preservation balance your tendency to take risks.  You are kind, considerate, intelligent, a quick learner, romantic, and artistic.  You promote fairness and equal rights.  Usually a very attractive woman, you look and dress younger than your age and project your sexuality in a stylish and unique way.  The manner in which you present yourself attracts men.

Early Childhood Conditioning

You may be insecure or emotionally immature, with a poor image of yourself, due to the absence of coddling and praise from a dysfunctional family — more the result of circumstance (like an absent or alcoholic parent) rather than intent. Consequently, you may have to periodically confront your disappointment in another’s frailty, as you work out your feelings about being treated unjustly, usually by your father.

How Your Personality May Undermine Your Health

Your inherent vulnerability is centered in your pancreatic enzyme reflex, which can lead to emotionally induced illnesses, such as digestive disturbances, elimination irregularities, nervous disorders, and despondency. You fear rejection and abandonment, and do not handle criticism well, and can undermine your health by excessively striving to overcome your fears. You may struggle needlessly with yourself through one quest or another, never feeling totally satisfied. This restlessness, combined with your super sensitivity, will hurt you, especially if you hold on to your childhood frustrations or anger. Such stress can make you physically ill, particularly if the stress is in response to emotionally charged situations involving people who criticize you. You need to be careful not to over-dramatize or over-indulge yourself in response to stressful situations.

Meeting Your Creative Wellness Challenge

You need to find creative ways to take care of yourself and compensate for your feelings of insecurity.  Because you love being a part-time gypsy, you may often take off on short trips or just wander. To make the most of your Aphrodite personality, you can:

  • learn to play a musical instrument
  • go places where you can be both student and social butterfly
  • express yourself creatively and artistically as often as possible
  • study the healing arts and metaphysics to satisfy your inner search for truth
  • take part in hobbies and activities that require companionship and allow you to improve yourself, such as playing softball or taking aerobics
  • pay close attention to your body’s needs and develop the self-discipline for good nutrition, proper exercise, scheduled rest, and (most importantly) healthy emotional outlets


Remember, no one is more capable than you to love and be loved.

Aphrodite’s Affirmation

I acknowledge that in my past
I have allowed my early upbringing
to keep me from becoming a whole person
— body, mind and soul as one.
I now accept a new understanding of myself
as a competent, secure woman,
with the faith to create a loving, disciplined lifestyle
that makes me happy, healthy, and in tune
with the true designs for my existence.
